    With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

    Excellent, practical advice on doing more and taking control. Can't recommend it enough to anyone who thought "I could do it better."

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Omnivore's Dilemma again? Why?

    Probably not. Its pretty long and its not type of story you would need to listen to multiple times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The descriptions of industrial organic make you really think about where your food comes from.


    Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?

    Yes, the description of the McDonald's chicken nuggets and how they were barely "healthier" than the burger was eye-opening!

    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    "Great Life Lessons!"

    The message itself was one of the best things about the book. It celebrated life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The anecdotal stories along with the message made for a very good read.


    Have you listened to any of Erik Singer, and Randy Pausch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to either before.

    They were both very good though.

    To live life completely.


    Any additional comments?
